After a successful run that spanned five decades, the final Impact was published in January 2020.  Impact was UTMB Health’s employee newsletter. It evolved from a one color printed tabloid newspaper to a full color magazine with a digital component. We’ve archived the past several years on these pages for your review and enjoyment.


Impact is for and about the people who fulfill UTMB’s mission to improve health in Texas and around the world. We hope you enjoy reading this issue. Let us know what you think!

The Health Education Center, a $91.6 million facility dedicated on UTMB’s Galveston Campus Oct. 18, is the centerpiece of the university’s educational mission to train the health care workforce of the future. 

What type of educational approach— which involves training students in different disciplines—is the focus of the teaching taking place at the HEC? (Hint: Answer is inside this issue.) 

Answer to the August/September trivia question: There were 10 degree programs represented during the School of Health Profession’s 2019 commencement ceremony, held Aug. 16 at Moody Gardens in Galveston. 

Congrats to Janet Haney, a nurse in UTMB’s Correctional Managed Care clinics at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Duncan and Diboll units, who won the August/September trivia!
